Simple Techniques to Create unique Backgrounds+ giveaway

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog! I’m showing you some fun backgrounds that I made while playing with the Gelli plates,  Grafix Matte Dura-Lar Film and Grafix Opaque White Craft Plastic. I must admit, mono-printing may seem intimidating, so I’ve broken it down to a couple of simple techniques.

The first thing when starting out is to choose 2 colors of your paint. I have tried creating a print on a variety of papers. They all work but I prefer high-quality papers like Matte Dura-Lar Film Pad or Wet Media Dura-Lar Pad or Opaque White Craft Plastic. It allows me to press in and around the Gelli  Arts Mylar Stencil, also I can use them in a variety of art projects. These first prints I used yellows, orange, and blue acrylic paints. I’ve used a gel press brayer to blend paints and create interesting marks. Or you can use Gelli Arts Mini Printing Tools Set to create different textures and effects.

In my next background, I used blues, purples, pink and yellow. You can create just a multi-colored background with brayer marks, or go further and use stencils for layering.

You can use different mediums besides acrylic paints, I used the color sprays and they gave an amazing look! After that, I let all my background dry then I cut them to into A2 size to fit my card base. Here are all my cards using these beautiful backgrounds

I’ve filmed my playtime which will show you how easy it is to do printing with your Gelli Plates and Grafix films. You can watch it below or on my YouTube channel HERE.
